The State University of New York at Geneseo is allowing early decision applicants this year to decide whether or not to submit SAT or ACT scores. An explanation from the university says that the option is "expressly designed for candidates who have achieved outstanding records of academic success in their high school studies – including such measures as the results of advanced placement/international baccalaureate exams – but who believe that their SAT/ACT results are neither commensurate with their achievements nor indicative of their potential for continued success in college." While many colleges have in recent years been going SAT-optional, Geneseo is the second institution (following American University) recently to adopt this for early decision applicants.
